OVERCOME - "The Great Campaign Of Sabotage" - Biography 2011

The partnership between Overcome and Facedown Records goes all the way back to the birth of the label in 1997, and now Overcome is back to release their new album The Great Campaign Of Sabotage as Facedown Records #100. The Phoenix hardcore legends lead by Jason Stinson have returned with new music and new members, but their message remains the same. Before there was a metalcore genre, Overcome were one of the pioneering bands to blend metal and hardcore in what would eventually become an influence of hundreds or more bands that would carry the torch, and build upon what Overcome was responsible for establishing.
 
Overcome formed in 1994 and were signed to Tooth & Nail Records for the release of their first two full-length albums Blessed Are The Persecuted in 1995, and When Beauty Dies in 1997. After the release of their sophomore album, they were freed from their contract and were the first official signing to Facedown Records. In May of 1998 they released The Life Of Death, a 5-song EP on Facedown, and then their third full-length Immortal Until Their Work Is Done in 2000, both of which were landmark releases for the newly formed Facedown Records. In the summer of 2000 Overcome went on what would become their final tour and they brought out a young Canadian band called Figure Four that would eventually grow to be another foundational band for Facedown Records. Members of Figure Four would go on to form the hardcore powerhouse Comeback Kid.
 
Facedown founder Jason Dunn had this to say about Overcome and the significance of their return album being Facedown #100: “I first saw Overcome in 1994 when they only had a demo tape out. Before I played drums for No Innocent Victim, I would travel with them and sell merch for them. NIV went out to play a couple of shows in Arizona and Overcome was the band that was also on the show. We instantly connected and have remained friends to this day. I always say that I don’t think Facedown Records would be around today without Overcome. They were the cornerstone of the label in its early years and teaming up with them instantly put our name out there for hardcore fans worldwide, both Christian and non. It’s an honor to be able to still work alongside these guys and to be able to release the new album as Facedown #100. I could not have dreamed of a more appropriate release for this landmark in the label’s history."
 



OVERCOME - Biography 2010

Overcome was the cornerstone of success for Facedown in its early years with their 5-song EP The Life Of Death. Prior to that, Overcome released a split 12″ with Clay and No Innocent Victim on Boot To Head Records, a full-length on Tooth & Nail Records (Blessed Are The Persecuted), a 7″ on Life Sentence Records (As The Curtain Falls), and another full-length on Tooth & Nail (When Beauty Dies). Overcome went on to record the album Immortal Until Their Work Is Done, which was released in December of 1999 on Facedown Records. The band broke up in 2000 and did one final summer tour with Figure Four. In 2003 they reunited for two reunion shows for the 2003 Facedown Fest.

After Overcome broke up, three of the members went on to form the death metal band Indwelling. Indwelling signed with Facedown for the release of their debut and only album And My Eye Shall Weep.

Overcome has now returned in 2010. But, this is not a reunion. This is a new era of the band. As time moves on life will always have its challenges and changes. Jason Stinson, the frontman and main songwriter for Overcome, lead the band through seven years of these challenges and changes. All of them rewarding. For the last several years it was time to focus and do “life” apart from this band. Now a new opportunity has once again become a reality and Overcome has returned with new members and new music. More important than all of this isn’t what has changed, but what hasn’t and will never change. That is our purpose and our message. Be ready… a new flame is burning.
